Storyline

Princess Maude seems to have gained the upper hand having defeated King Stephen on the battlefield and taken him prisoner. However, her brother, Gloucester, has been taken prisoner by the other side, and a prisoner exchange is arranged. It doesn't go well and the self-styled Empress Maude and King Stephen are again at war. Philip's life is saved when his brother unexpectedly arrives in Lincoln. He manages to get access to the quarry to complete the cathedral and also a license to hold a market. Aliena's suggestion that they hold a fleece fair in direct competition with Shiring has tragic results. Jack and a jealous Alfred continue to fight and bicker and force Tom to choose between them. Bishop Waleran reveals his true ambition. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The opening scene shows King Stephen being held in a squalid cage in Lincoln Castle. In fact, he was held prisoner in apartments in Bristol Castle, hundreds of miles from Lincoln. Though at one point he was chained, he was far too high-ranking to be caged or left in filth. See more »

Quotes

Waleran Bigod: When chaos reigns, dear Lady, Satan often forgets about God's humble servants, and we may carry on with our holy work without interference.
